Female Sexual Dysfunction Healthcare Provider Expert Panel

To help to ensure that the clinical development program for bremelanotide is designed to meet the needs of patients and healthcare providers, Palatin works closely with practicing regional US experts in the field of female sexual health. These providers have a unique perspective that is helpful to Palatin in not only understanding the clinical trial results, safety and potential value of bremelanotide in hypoactive sexual desire disorder, but also in helping Palatin understand knowledge gaps among practitioners about the condition. Their insights are important in helping Palatin raise awareness and understanding of female sexual health. This provides an opportunity for Palatin to invest in appropriate and beneficial non-drug educational initiatives to help further understanding of female sexual disorders, raise awareness of diagnostic tools and tips for having productive physician:patient interactions, and increase understanding of the neurobiology of female sexual dysfunction.
